A deviated septum is one of the most common reasons Anaheim clients decide to undergo a septoplasty at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach. The septoplasty is a non-cosmetic surgical procedure that straightens a crooked septum. The crooked or deviated septum often causes breathing difficulties through one or both sides of the nose because it constricts the nasal passageway(s). Over the last 20 years, board-certified Dr. Mohsen Tavoussi has helped hundreds of deviated septum patients in Anaheim breathe easier which improves the quality of life.
Anaheim Septoplasty Surgical Procedure
The deviated septum can be a condition of birth or the result of an injury to the nose. The septum is the cartilage and bone that separates the inside of the nose. It is covered by a thin lining called mucosa which swells on and off throughout the day. A deviated septum is a crooked or malformed septum that creates a smaller than normal passageway which is blocked further when the mucosa swells. A further complication occurs when a turbinate enlarges in response to the crooked septum. A turbinate is curled tissue that warms and humidifies the air you breathe in through the nose. Normally there is a space between the turbinate and the septum. When the turbinate swells, the space is closed off, and air cannot pass through.
The Anaheim septoplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the septum to straighten it out while a turbinectomy reduces the size of an enlarged turbinate. The procedures can be done alone or together, or in conjunction with a different surgery like surgery to correct a sinus problem or a rhinoplasty (nose job). The septoplasty is an outpatient surgery that usually takes less than two hours when it is performed alone or with a turbinectomy. In most cases, the surgery is done inside the nose by going through the nostrils, and no visible incision is made on the outside of the nose.
Being able to breathe freely improves the quality of life for Anaheim clients. The septoplasty may also relieve patients from repeated sinus infections if the deviated septum was causing the sinus problems. Dr. Tavoussi is an experienced and professionally recognized surgeon who has treated a variety of patients in need of a septoplasty procedure in Orange County. He also has a number of clients from other areas and states who specifically seek his services because of his expertise and reputation for patient care.
